KINDERGARTEN'S 5:11 ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER AND BUILD EACH OTHER UP!
During the month of May the Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs have chosen to focus our service project on something close to our hearts: other children! Our focus will be to support the Ronald McDonald House which helps families whose lives have been disrupted as a result of their children's injury or illness. They provide housing and outreach programs right down the street from us, across from Children's Hospital. Please help us support this local charity that does so much to help children!
We will be doing a fundraiser with two activities:
- $1.00 Jean Day will be Wednesday, May 23rd. Students may wear their 5:11 t-shirt and jeans when they donate a dollar or more for this charity.
- Collect your pop tabs! Soda can pop tabs will be collected from May 1st through May 23rd in each classroom for the Ronald McDonald House. The class with the most pop tabs will earn a special treat!
FIELD DAY IS MAY 18TH!
Mark your calendars and join us for the 2012 Elm Grove Memorial Day Parade. This year's theme is "Land that I Love!" The parade begins on Monday, May 28th at 10:30AM.

IT'S BIRTHDAY BOOK TIME
IT'S BIRTHDAY BOOK TIME
Each year our school library invites families to participate in our "Birthday Book" project. We are able to prepurchase books at discount prices and then encourage families to buy and donate a book to the school library. This can be to commemorate a birthday in the upcoming school year, to remember a special event such as First Communion or Graduation, or to honor a deceased member of the family. A special label will be placed in the book and the books will be available for check-out when we come back to school in the fall. If you are interested, stop in the library anytime or find Miss Benson to help you. The books will be on display in the library from May 7th until June 1st.
